Really enjoyed the rally!

I have been to approximately 20 RA rallies and can't remember one of them that was so well organized!
Everything from the vendor's locations, to making sure the rest rooms were kept clean and well stocked!

Jeanne and I also enjoyed riding in the parade :). (It was also well organized.)

There were many other positive things and extras but too numerous to write here.
You had to be there to appreciate them.

Only negative I can think of:
THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY the first two days!
Luckily Leinenkugel’s Brewery (free beer tasting) and an air-conditioned theater were close at hand Smile :).

Thanks for a great rally! Tina, amazing job of juggling! Everything went so smoothly, just wish you could have done something about Friday's weather, but hey, you got me the phone number to a motel, that's service! :wink

Thank you all very much. Makes all the work worthwhile. Plus seeing so many smiling faces from our friends.

As I always say (Mark will attest to this) - thanks for the great memories.
